The Elks Texarkana Lodge 2771 is hosting a "52 Week Gun Raffle," which means if you are the luckiest person on the planet you could actually win 52 guns. Not exactly sure what those odds would be but since every winner's ticket goes back into the hopper, it is theoretically possible, right?

Although, not likely. But, only 1000 tickets will be sold, they are $50 each so the odds of winning are way better than a lottery ticket or lightning striking twice. When you think about it, what gun owner doesn't need/want another gun? The bonus is you get to help out a local charity in the process.

All proceeds will benefit Hero's Pantry of Texarkana, a non-profit food pantry dedicated to helping veterans here in our community.

  • Each winner will be able to choose from the guns available at that time.
  • There will be a winner each week.
  • Do not need to be present to win.
  • Must be 21 or older to win.
  • Must pass a background check.

These are new and gently used donated guns, all are in excellent condition.

  • Ruger 10-22 Takedown
  • Kimber Pro Carry .45 1911
  • Springfield XD 45
